spot reserved at my house for Mike Green, as long as you don't mind an air mattress or sofa :)

1-2 spots left at mi casa.

I'll be giving rides to and from the location and any party spots after, and it is super close to caltrain (better for SF), which connects to bart. just look up downtown mountain view california to get an idea of where I live :)

I can't say yet, due to graduation variables, however if ticket prices remain as low as they are right now, I would come.... And, if whatever job I get, gives me the time off work... etc, etc.

I miss the Bay more than my childhood.

Also, the written dates in the top post don't make sense. 24/25/26 ≠ sense.

i like that you didn't confirm not going ken, there is hope!

mr. dean, it would great to shred again, I feel like we have a similar shred level and its a great challenge in circle :)

and jay, the dates have been logically fixed up.
the bay misses you as much as the pizza has gotten better, its unbelievable

I feel the same way about circle. Also we always seem to get paired up in circle semis, probably because of our similar level, can't wait to step it up this time.

You can confirm me and Justin. And I'll see what other Portlanders I can drag along.

I know that some of you may not be into drinking (not referring to you BrianBear :wink: ), but the finals site this year will be at Linden Street Brewery at the Port of Oakland, where there will be Jamaican food and reggae music, a large crowd, and space to kick. Players will get free access to this site, whereas spectators will pay a small fee to enter. Players will also get free food and beer (probably a non-alcoholic beverage option as well) on Monday. The other nights of the Green Cup, we usually have parties that are mostly attended by net players who get sloshed and shave mullets into each others' hair. No guarantees this year . . . . As always freestyle players are encouraged to come and hang out!
In recent years the freestyle and Net events have been separate, however, this year, it would be nice if there was more mixing of the crowds. Hope to see you there!

Feel free to email me for more information if you're on the fence:

I will most likely only be able to attend the Finals on Sunday, car got totaled yesterday. So Saturday is a no go for me. BUT! On the Sunday, I will be bringing along my buddy and his video production teacher with their nifty ass gear to record some dudes kickin' sacks. One more week from today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not enough exclamation points in the world to show how excited I am.
Live, Love, Footbag
